This study is the first comprehensive treatment of the way Marsilius of Padua (1270/1290-1342), a seminal political thinker of the Late Middle Ages, elaborated on Aristotle's political thought in articulating his political theory. Its main thesis is that Marsilius is committed to the view of a sharp disjunction between ethics and politics, thus deviating radically not only from Aristotle, but also from the majority of medieval Commentators of Aristotle such as Thomas Aquinas, Giles of Rome, Peter of Auvergne and John of Jandun. From a methodological viewpoint, it follows the model of "concentric circles" its starting point is a detailed comparison of the main ideas of the Defensor pacis (Defender of Peace) (1324), Marsilius' opus magnum, on the one hand, and Marsilius' quotations from William of Moerbeke's Latin translations of Aristotle's works focusing in particular on the Politics, the Nicomachean Ethics, the Rhetoric and the Metaphysics as well as the Greek original, on the other. This method of exploring the use of classics in medieval political thought challenges the notion of "reception" as conceived of by recent research and brings out a number of crucial differences between Marsilius and Aristotle. Further, this study situates Marsilius' ideas in the history of late medieval political thought (podestà literature etc.), the political realities that obtained in 14th-century Padua and late medieval debates on the fortunes of the communal regime and on the rise of the signoria (e.g. Albertino Mussato). It also argues against Marsilius' so-called Averroism and identifies Moses Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed as a potential source of the Defensor pacis.

About the Author:

Vasileios Syros, Ph.D. (2003) in Medieval and Modern History and Philosophy at Ruprecht-Karl-Universität Heidelberg, is a Junior Research Fellow of the Academy of Finland at the University of Helsinki. His teaching and research interests cluster around the history of medieval and early modern political thought in the Christian, Muslim and Jewish traditions.

Review:

"Sehr informiert und gelehrt führt uns Vasileios Syros durch die Rezeptions- und Denkwelten der Antike, Scholastik und Spiitscholastik [...] Vasileios Syros hat ein lesenswertes Buch geschrieben, ein hochgradig informiertes und belesenes Buch, das sein Versprechen grandios einlost, die Lagunen der Aristoteles-Rezeption bei Marsilius von Padua zu beheben."
Alexander Thumfart, Universität Erfurt, in Mediaevistik 24 (2011): pp 707-711.

"Syros' study is an important contribution to the research on the development of the science of government in the Renaissance and in Early Modernity. It underscores that the republican conception of the causes for the establishment and the decay of political orders is not an invention of the 16th or 17th century."
Andreas Niederberger, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main in Hobbes Studies 24 (2011), pp. 201-201.

"Syros has written a highly useful book which will help both scholars of late medieval political thought and also those concerned with the transmission of Aristotelian ideas in this period."
Joseph Canning, University of Cambridge. In: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History 62 (2011), p. 819.

"Die Rezeption der aristotelischen politischen Philosophie bei Marsilius von Padua is an extremely valuable work because it fills major lacunae in scholarship on the fates of classical political thought and science in medieval and early modern Europe. On a more fundamental level, Syros' study offers intriguing insights into the interaction among the medieval Christian, Jewish and Arabic traditions of political theorizing and casts fresh light on the transmission of learning in medieval and early modern Europe."
Marica Costigliolo in Polis: The Journal of the Society For Greek Political Thought, Volume 27, Number 1, 2010, pp. 178-180.
